GL Participates in INMARCO Conference

Tuesday, November 21, 2006
"Advanced Techniques in Tanker Design and Operation" is the topic of a presentation by Germanischer Lloyd experts at the INMARCO conference in Mumbai, India this week. The paper showcases safety relevant aspects in tanker building and the tools utilized by Germanischer Lloyd in the design of tankers. Such areas are sloshing, vibration, shaft alignment and crashworthiness. For example, GL uses the highly effective direct computation instead of model tests to predict the effects of sloshing.

The one hour workshop "GL Academy - Discover the Maritime Knowledge World" takes place on November 24 and November 25 and presents an overview of the comprehensive maritime training programme by GL Academy. The seminars offer expert skills combined with wide-ranging practical experience. The GL Academy courses convey the experience and know-how of Germanischer Lloyd and address technical and managerial challenges of shipyards. The modular training program encompasses more than 60 seminars, all of which are also available in-house.
